About Us

IMG_6102__resize.jpgKelly McNally, DDS
Dr. Kelly McNally has been practicing dental medicine for more than 24 years.  Kelly’s passion for dentistry was fueled by her own personal experience; she knows how it feels to be too embarrassed to smile.  Kelly was born with a cleft lip and palette.  After many reconstructive surgeries, and 12 years of orthodontics, Kelly knows how life changing it can be to be given the gift of a new smile.  With that realization came Kelly’s commitment to give the gift of a smile to others through dentistry.

After completing her undergraduate education at Loyola University, Kelly continued her studies at the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, University of Maryland Dental School.   Following her graduation in 1991, Kelly went on to complete a General Practice Residency at The Medical Center of Delaware.

In 1992, Kelly moved to New Jersey to join Larry and his father in practice.  That same year Kelly joined the staff of Valley Hospital and began teaching prosthodontics at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.

Kelly continues to practice with her husband, Lawrence Passarelli, DDS, at their office on Franklin Avenue in Ridgewood, NJ.  She is an active member of the NJ Dental Association and continues to share her passion for prosthodontics with the local dental community.

Larry graduated from Trinity College in 1985, with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering. By 1989, Larry had decided his true calling was in dentistry and immediately upon graduation from Trinity matriculated at the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery, Dental School at University of Maryland.
